Kohlrabi & Ham Gratin
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put a large pot of water on to boil. Coat a 1 1/2-quart gratin dish or similar-size shallow baking dish with cooking spray.Advertisement
Cook kohlrabi in the boiling water until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.
Heat 1 cup milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Whisk flour and the remaining 1/3 cup milk in a small bowl to make a smooth paste; stir into the hot milk and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in ham and cheese. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Distribute the cooked kohlrabi in the prepared dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the top, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
Bake the gratin until bubbling and golden on top, 30 to 40 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 4; cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs, trim crusts from firm whole-wheat bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice of bread makes about 1/2 cup fresh crumbs.
